We actually had to extend our stay in the hills because half of our crew had flown in for the trip and weren't able to get flights back home for a few days. I am kind of grateful for that.

And big wuss? No worries, hell, no such thing as a big wuss coming down those switchbacks, let alone doing it again.

Nice touch, sdh. I love Telluride. My last time there was '86, as a free-lance contract video engineer. It was the best gig I ever had. I worked backstage all weekend, for pretty decent pay too. I've spent most of my time since '79 living in Colorado. I'm in Fort Collins now. I recommend trying out Pikes Peak on your way in, or on your way back. Just to put a fork in it. Take the Cog Railway to the summit -- one way -- and hike back down to Manitou Springs. Barr Trail is 12.6 miles from summit to Cog Railway station. If you take the last train of the day, it will be dark before you hike all the way back down. This gives you a bird's eye view of city lights below from Manitou and Colorado Springs.
